Who Should Read This Page?

Have you or do you happen to know someone who is battling with some form of chronic infection?  Then you have arrived at the right page.  In this section you will learn about the nature of chronic infection and how to overcome it. You will also learn about the connection between cancer and chronic infection.  Finally, we will outline Hope4Cancer Institute's strategies against chronic infection which are applicable to everybody, whether you have cancer or not. 

What Are Chronic Infections?  How Can You Win Against Them?

When you think of chronic infections, you think of the big diseases such as  Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS.  The reality is that there are a myriad of chronic infections, many too complex to uniquely describe.   Chronic infections are insidious in nature.  The immune system is incapable of fighting them off, as a result of which the infective agent can become entrenched in the system.  Often the symptoms of a chronic infection are not even noticeable, but they tend to grow and cause potentially life threatening or quality of life degrading situations with time.   Taking care of infections as early as possible is therefore of paramount importance.

If you have an active, defined chronic infection, such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, bladder infections, urinary tract infections and others, then you must take action immediately.  Your action must be clearly defined in two areas:  first, finding a solution to the infection and second, changing the body's environment that is helping it harbor the infection without fighting it off.  If you do not know of any active infections, then it still makes sense to understand how you can prevent occurrence of chronic infections.  Read ahead to learn more.

There is a World of Difference Between Acute and Chronic Infections!

Chronic infections and acute infections may have similar infective agents, but the implications are different.   Infections in general are a group of conditions characterized by an immune system whose defenses have been breached.  A healthy immune system is fighting off infective agents all the time, often without us even noticing. We are under constant attack from bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites. Acute infections are those when the defenses get breached, but the immune system responds actively.  After a brief battle, the immune system is typically victorious, and in many cases, antibodies formed from the exposure can protect the individual for certain periods of time from future infections.

Chronic infections are scenarios where the immune system fails to respond to the infective agent - for many possible reasons.  It can cause inflammation of tissues that we may, or may not, be able to feel but which can have long term deleterious effects. Even though these chronic infections don’t always cause overt symptoms, they still tax the body and can cause nutritional deficiencies, stress on the adrenal glands and on the immune system as a whole.

Some Typical Chronic Infections include:

  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Mycoplasma
  • Epstein Barr Virus/Cytomegalovirus
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Fibromyalgia
  • Gulf War Syndrome
  • Others

What Happens When I Have A Chronic Infection?

Chronic infection can affect and weaken the immune system resulting in many serious disorders.  Chronic infection can also reduce the body’s ability to respond to pathogenic organisms, tumors, or tissue damage.  Chronic infections may get worse, lead to death, be cured, remain dormant or require continual monitoring.


How Do I Know That I Have A Chronic Infection?  
Signs and Symptoms

Most people find out they have a chronic infection following a diagnosis from a doctor.  However, the vast majority of chronic infections go unnoticed.  General signs and symptoms can be many and varied.  Depending on the type of chronic infection that you have, you may experience fever, weight loss, and fatigue.  The severity of the following signs and symptoms can vary. Symptoms could include:

  • Fatigue for 3 months or longer
  • Weight loss
  • Unexplained fevers
  • Bursitis
  • Depressed white blood cell count
  • Increased white blood cell count
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Pain Night Sweats

Losing the Antibiotic Battle: Traditional Treatment Options for Chronic Infection

The conventional approach to treatment of chronic infection may vary depending on your diagnosis.  Your doctor may suggest:

  • Medication
  • Hospitalization
  • Change in Diet
  • Change in Lifestyle

Chronic infections tend to be complex conditions in how they are treated.   These conditions and treatments are often long-lasting and persistent in their effects and can produce a range of complications. 

The core of treating any chronic infection is by using an antibiotic or combination of antibiotics.  The problem with using antibiotics is that eventually the pathogens develop resistance and require higher potency of antibiotics.  In addition to that, a non-cooperative immune system is prone to the regrowth of infections.   Long-term use of antibiotics is also not desirable because of the series of side effects that can happen.  As antibiotics become stronger, the side effects can get more and more pronounced.  As the infections get more pronounced, more and more toxins are released which compound the problem even further.  This is a slow, no-win battle.

At Hope4Cancer Institute we do not advise our patients to stop their antibiotic regimen.  Instead we invest our time and efforts in helping our patients rebuild their immune system and detoxify, while providing them with natural therapies that combat the infection.
